So, the long Easter weekend is nearly upon us. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly looking forward to turning my computer off (well trying to) and enjoying some April sun. Over the next 4 days, posts will be lighter but be rest assured, they’ll still be some daily eye candy to pop by and check out if your relatives start to drive you mad!
In other news, this week I was invited by WEDDING Magazine to attend their cover shoot. It was a really fabulous day and I was thrilled to be involved with such an exciting project. My behind the scenes report and photos will be on the blog next week!
Mmm tasty…I trust these treats will get you right in the mood for scoffing lots of Easter eggs this weekend?

“Circa 1991, and like most 9 year old girls at the time, my dream wedding typically consisted of getting married in a castle, having a horse-drawn carriage at midnight and saying ‘I Do’ to Jason Priestly. So fast-forward 20 years…our castle was in busy Tooting Broadway, wedged in between a Mecca Bingo Hall and a McDonalds, with a KFC conveniently across the road. Our horse-drawn carriage was a local taxi, well beyond midnight. And Jason Priestly? He got bumped for my love and best friend, Mars. It was completely perfect for us. Sad to say, Brandon had been banished to the Peach Pit forever.”
I love Ilka & Mars already. How about you?
Mar’s proposed at the airport, just before Ilka was about to fly home to Australia, with her Grandmother’s engagement ring. She explained, “So after a couple of years of living together and rarely talking ‘seriously’ about getting married, I was waiting in the busy security line at Heathrow, about to spend 3 weeks back home in Australia for a Christmas apart, when Mars popped the question. After unknowingly foiling an attempted romantic proposal during a holiday in New York a few months earlier, it was a perfect chance to catch me unawares while I was unsuccessfully trying to stuff the contents of my entire handbag into a tiny clear zip-lock bag, and rush off to board the plane. It was simple and just perfect. After a quick, teary goodbye and my grandmother’s beautiful engagement ring now firmly on my finger, I was herded through security and onto the plane. Needless to say, the next 24hours consisted of me taking full advantage of the onboard trolley service, trying to come to terms with what had just happened!”
